We are working on a CEPH setup where we will have 5 nodes spread on 3 locations.
One of the location will be there only to act as a "quorum node".

We are planning to have AMD based cluster.

Can the node acting as the "Quorum node" be Intel based (we are trying to recycle hardware and limit costs) or does it need to be also AMD based ?

thx for your reply.
If you don't plan to live migrate any VMs to that node then it doesn't matter :)
